Why Explore Botswana?

Years of experience

Explore Botswana is part of Explore Namibia, which is a dynamic and professional company located in Namibia, founded in 2006 by the Dutch couple, Marco and Elise. Both have travelled through Africa extensively and they simply love it. When the opportunity occurred to go on an adventure to Africa, they did not hesitate, quit their jobs in Europe and moved 10.000 km South. And still today, after all these years they still love what they do – Explore Namibia & Botswana and help others do the same! In 2018, Julia joined Marco and Elise on this adventure. Julia was born and raised on a guest-farm in Namibia, was always closely involved with visitors from all over the world and fascinated by their passion for these southern African countries.
